So yesterday was the Super Bowl, the high holy day for those of us who are NFL football fanatics. And of course, with the big game came the commercials. I love watching what these advertisers come up with to try and entice us into shelling out more dough for stuff we already don't need.
I loved these three commercials. They were clever, funny and had a broad appeal to both women and men. I geeked out over the Metlife Insurance spot and the Ferris Bueller tribute from Honda.
These were just lame, boring or otherwise unappealing.
Go Daddy (as per usual)I wonder if any women even consider Go Daddy when looking for domain names. I know I don't.
Kia Optima. This one is so cliched, its stupidity is self-explanatory. I mean does Kia actually think they'll draw in female buyers with this? We do purchase cars more than guys these days. And really, heavy metal and bikini models for an Optima? That's like dressing up grandma in a biker jacket.
This title goes to Fiat for this strange commercial. If a car is going to be a woman, then she should be a Ferrari and not a Fiat. Otherwise, it's not much of a fantasy is it? It's kind of like taking a spa treatment at the local Comfort Inn. And what about this would actually influence a woman to buy a Fiat? But, then again, Fiat probably though they took care of the female audience with their lame J-Lo ad.
What did you think of these commercials? See any ads that annoy you when you watch TV? Any commercials you love?
